Enjoy a spectacular hot air balloon ride over the beautiful and historic Black Hills of South Dakota with a complimentary Champagne toast! You'll experience a 1-hour flight at sunrise in one of the most scenic places in the world. A souvenir flight certificate and postcard is also included in this tour. Allow about three hours for the experience, from start to finish.

A hot air balloon ride is a one-of-a-kind adventure for South Dakota locals and visitors. With over thirty years flying experience, your guide will take you on the only hot air balloon ride adventure offered in the Black Hills.

Flying in the beautiful Black Hills is a unique experience. While balloon flights are generally focused over vineyards and farmland, you will fly over some spectacular, rugged terrain on this route, typically in the southern hills. From up high you'll see the Custer Valley and the world-renowned Custer State Park. On certain days if the winds are favorable, you'll be able to see Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial. There are mountains, valleys, lakes and prairies to view as you drift along on the morning breeze, and travelers quite often see some unique wildlife that you really don't see in many other places from a balloon! The Black Hills are home to elk, antelope, buffalo and mule deer. If you're really lucky you might even see a mountain lion from the secure gondola! There’s nowhere else in the world where you can witness the same views from a hot air balloon and fly over such a historic and beautiful landscape.

DAY 1 -  Buffalo Roundup&Arts Festival 9/28/2018
Custer State Park in the beautiful Black Hills of western South Dakota is full of lush forests, quiet and serene meadows, and majestic mountains. This 71,000-acre state park is also home to one of the world's largest publicly-owned bison herds 1,300 strong. Each fall, the ground rumbles & the dust flies as cowboys, cowgirls and park crews saddle up to bring in the thundering herd. 

DAY 2 - Northern Hills/Spearfish Canyon 9/29/2018
Spearfish Canyon, where four ecosystems meet; trees and plants from Rocky Mountains, Eastern Woodlands, Northern Forests and Great Plains areas can be found here.This canyon provides breathtaking beauty with thousand-foot-high limestone/sandstone palisades in shades of brown, pink and gray and three amazing waterfalls and amazing variety of colors. 

DAY 1 - CUSTER STATE PARK  -  BUFFALO ROUNDUP  + Arts Festival
 September 29, 2017   6:30 am pickup at your Rapid City hotel. We provide a bag chair, fruit, OJ, bottled water & snacks and a picnic lunch.

One of the Top Events in the United States Custer, South Dakota's annual Buffalo Roundup and Arts Festival. The Buffalo Roundup is part of Custer State Park's management plan to maintain a healthy balance between the number of bison and the available range land forage. The park can only sustain a certain number of bison, based on the condition of the grassland and how much food is available. The Buffalo Roundup also allows for some of the animals to be sorted out of the herd, they are then sold at an auction in November. After the Roundup (11:00 am) we travel to the State Game Lodge. There for the next three + hours, you can enjoy live entertainment as you stroll the heritage arts and crafts exhibits at the Arts Festival. And Western/Native American entertainment is provided under the big top. We return you to your hotel @ 3:30 pm. 


DAY 2 - SPEARFISH CANYON and the Northern Hills  
 September 30, 2017 - 9:00am pickup - We provide bottled water, fees, snacks and picnic lunch.

Spearfish Canyon is the Northern Hill's number one natural attraction. A great spot for wildlife enthusiasts, as the diverse array of plant life provides a comfortable home for deer, mountain goats, porcupines and bobcats. It winds through the canyon for nearly 20 miles from the city of Spearfish to Cheyenne Crossing. Built on top of an ancient rail bed, the highway affords visitors views of pristine natural wonders and historical treasures. Near the end of the canyon is the old sawmill town of Savoy. 

  • Spearfish Falls is slightly off the beaten path, but well worth the walk. It is located at the base of Spearfish Canyon at Savoy. There is a trail that will guide you to the bottom of the canyon and take you beneath a canopy of trees as you approach the roaring waters of Spearfish Falls. Be sure to wear good shoes as the trail can be slippery at times. 
  • Cascading approximately 60 feet, Bridal Veil Falls is the most accessible waterfall in the canyon. The Falls flows intensely in the spring and slows considerably in late summer and fall. it is located adjacent to a large parking lot to accommodate sightseers. An observation platform has been installed to optimal viewing and photos. 
  • Roughlock Falls, a breathtaking multi-tiered waterfall along Little Spearfish Canyon. Pioneers traveling down the canyon used to lower their wagons down the drop by rough-locking the wheels to prevent them from rolling freely - hence the name of the falls.
